At Éigse Oirialla the oral song tradition was centre stage, with local singers and singers from Donegal playing a key role in the renewal and celebration of traditional sean-nós singing in Irish in Oriel. Nineteen unaccompanied sean-nós singers took part in stage concerts with over 60 singers attending the workshops.
